    Description of Course: 
    Grade 9 Health and Physical Education is aligned to Pennsylvania Academic Standards, National Health Standards, and National Physical Education Standards. The goal of Health Education is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to lead healthy lifestyles. A skills-based approach is a best practice for delivering high-quality health education. Health literacy is an important measure of the effectiveness of health education and is critical to ensuring that students have the ability to be healthy throughout their lives. Health-literate people are able to address their own health needs along with the needs of others. They are able to obtain and apply knowledge and skills to enhance their own health and the health of others — both now and in the future as their needs change throughout their lives. Physical literacy is the ability to move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole person. Physical Education develops the physically literate individual through deliberate practice of well-designed learning tasks that allow for skill acquisition in an instructional climate focused on mastery.  During physical education class, students practice the knowledge and skills they have learned through physical activity and bodily movement resulting in energy expenditure.
